A Magnet for Money

31 12 2008

Dave Ramsey often tells callers that money is drawn to those who properly manage it.  I think that he means that when you know where every penny of your money is going, you find that you have more than you thought. 

The first written budget we made starts tomorrow – January 1st.  Last night I was balancing my Money register against CEFCU online and discovered an unknown deposit was made earlier in the day in the amount of $666.72.

My husband got an unexpected end of the year bonus for work.  Extremely unexepected, since earlier this month there was some concern that he may get laid off. 

Coincidence?  I hope not.  It would be wonderful to get unexpected amounts of money on a more regular basis, unless of course, it was an inheritance. 

I’m off to check the Illinois database for unclaimed property

 

***UPDATE*** I did check that site and found 2 amounts for my grandmother (who died in 2007).  One amount is between $10-$100 and the other is more than $100.  My mom is her executor and is going to send in for more information.  She said she’d give me a 10% finder’s fee (mimimum $11 at this point).  Perhaps there is some truth to this money magnet thing after all.
